NEW CASTLE —
The Shenango High girls track and field team is headed to the postseason.

The win locked up a WPIAL team playoff berth for Shenango (6-1). It’s the second-straight playoff appearance for the Lady Wildcats and fifth in the last six years.
“They’ve competed hard all year,” Shenango girls coach Brian Cooper said. “I’m happy for the seniors. They’ve been good leaders and have been doing everything that we’ve asked of them. All that hard work is starting to pay off.”
“We’re working towards the playoffs every year. That’s always our first goal. Winning the section is the second goal. We’ve been pretty fortunate for the most part over the past six years, having made the playoffs five times during that time.”
Reamer claimed the 1600, 3200 and 3200 relay, while Presnar captured the 800, 1600 relay and 3200 relay.
